Study for a Masters of Social Work Applied

Wednesday, August 13, 2014   Posted in: Training By: Administrator With tags: social, Training, qualification, Courses

Tena koutou

This innovative Master of Social Work (MSW) programme provides those with an undergraduate degree and an interest in social sciences an opportunity to gain an internationally recognised first professional qualification in social work.

Study can be undertaken either full-time for two years or part-time over a maximum of six years. Part-time enrolment is an attractive option for students seeking flexibility in their study arrangements. Graduates from the program will be eligible for Registration as a social worker.

The MSW (Applied) will be offered as a distance learning programme, taught by a blend of online web based learning forums and in-person block courses at the UC campus in Christchurch. Delivered in this format, the qualification will be attractive to those currently in practice and more accessible for people out of Christchurch. Teaching and learning are strongly linked across the programme to both research and practice literature. Learning takes place in the context of an active research community, both within the Department of Human Services and Social Work, and Te Awatea Violence Research Centre.

The MSW (Applied) at UC represents an excellent opportunity for those interested in gaining a recognised first professional qualification in social work, at postgraduate level, from an established tertiary provider.

Contact the Department of Social Work and Human Services at the University of Canterbury for more information (03 364 2976 or admin[at]
